The hutch I am refinishing has become my life. And, yes, it is still a work in progress. My little J-man turned four this week so I have been busy planning an epic birthday party and day for him. I hope to jump back into the swing of things and knock this piece out this week.
As you may have seen in my last hutch post, I decided to go with a first coat of Paris Grey. After doing some research on washing, I decided to go with an Old White wash on top. Here is a little sneak peek.
A lot of people have asked me lately about what the Annie Sloan Dark Wax does and here is a great example. The left door has a dark wax treatment on it, while the door on the right only has a coat of clear wax. Dark wax simply gives a piece more character and age without having to wait for natural elements to distress it like air, moisture, dirt, light and time. You get a rustic look like it came out of a cottage or farmhouse in minutes not years. Love it!
I hope to be sharing the reveal of the dining hutch with you soon. I am so ready to have it done as it has been quite the labor of love. Don't I look so happy? No, but I will be super excited when it is finished.
